Jennings won 74 straight games in 2004, setting the record for the show’s longest winning streak. He returned for the Greatest of All Time tournament in 2020 and won that, too. He now works on “Jeopardy!” as a segment producer.
Richards, who hosted the quiz show from February 22 to March 5, worked as the executive producer of “The Price Is Right” and “Let’s Make A Deal” for almost 10 years before joining “Jeopardy!” and “Wheel of Fortune” in 2020. He has won three Daytime Emmy awards.
Couric, who hosted from March 8 to 19, said that while she wouldn’t be interested in hosting “Jeopardy!” full-time if offered the job, she told Poynter in March that she enjoyed her time on the show.
“It was a lot of fun, but it was a very tough job,” she said. “And I said to many of my friends who complimented me: Thank God for post-production.”
